wow, great place to end there. however i was half hoping to see them get some private lessons, but who knows what will happen next.
very nice and i am very gald the next chapter has been posted that was truely the most horrible place to end this chapter. however great story.
Wonderful story. All through it I going with the characters moods. I was really pulling for Jordan and all his attemps to get Lily to see that he did indeed like her. It may of tool him all year but he finally got her. Very nice and diferent story in a very good way :)
Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m so glad you liked the story and the characters. :D
What an ending, I really thought Harry was done for. Ah but no he still lives. Great story look forward to the end and seeing what life while hold for them in the epilogue.
Wow, This was a great chapter. I was hanging on my seat for the last for lines, some very exciting stuff. Hopefully there is an update soon.
On a side note it seemed like your chapter was validated very quickly. I dont recall it being up yesterday but today it is and I can read it. Most stories i read the chapters are up for a while but you cant read them i was wondering if you know somehow to quickin this process or if it is just me and it took your story the same time it does others. Well anyways great stories here you have written.
Author's Response: Some authors at MNFF are listed for automatic validation. I\'m one of those authors, so I don\'t have to wait for the chapter to go through -- it appears automatically.
Thanks for the review :)
I really like your story, very interesting and well written. Please update soon :)
Great chapter; the way you write Fawkes is very good. I had been wonder what Harry would do on burning days, I guess now we will find out. Great work look forward to your next update!
Author's Response: I really enjoy Fawkes as a character. Because we don\'t get much beyond him being Dumbledore\'s pet from the books, I feel like any personality I give him is something original that I can do, so it\'s more fun.
Brilliant chapter as always. Madame Pompfrey was great always getting mad at Harry for trying to do things, well written. The end with Lupin was very moving. Look forward to the nest update :)
Author's Response: Thanks, I really appreciate the reviews you submit. I don't think you've missed a chapter recently! The next chapter is in, and will hopefully be up soon.
Well I read the chapter awhile ago but did not have the time to review then so I will do it now. :) Your story is so great, I think you do an amazing job portarying the character as they are in the books: Harry running off by himself, Ron throwing himself out to save his friends and family. I look forward to seeing Hermione trying the animagus now that she is the only one left to completely master it. As well as what develops with Harry and Fawkes very interesting what happened with them, which truely shows your creative flare. I loved how Hermione knew what type of spell it was just by the description. I could just picture her having read a book that had that in. I had thought that since it had been awhile since I had check the site I would find a new chapter up there is but to my huge disappointment it is not validated yet...........I almost screamed but oh well I reviewed this chapter instead keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I\'ve always really appreciated your reviews, and I hope you\'ll keep them coming!
Wow that was worth the wait. I think this is the best chapter yet. It is so filled with intense emotion and action. I laughed when Molly told Ron she would be talking to him about making bad jokes like Harry was dead. And I see the next chapter is already up to be validated just wow. I have about 10 stories on my fravorites list and yours has been update more then all of them put together. Job well done on a wonderful story.
Author's Response: I\'m really glad you enjoyed this chapter. The next one should be pretty exciting as well, and I think it will stay that way until the end. There won\'t be much time for them to rest anymore, so I hope everyone is really excited.
Ah yes, now that you mention the snowball fight I remeber the time. I take back my statement i guess going chapter by chapter and my forgetfullness make it tough to keep track of the time. Your story is great and your willingness to reply to the reviews make it even better. Best story and author that i have read from this site indeed. My hats off to you!! :O
Author's Response: Thanks! I love getting reviews, so of course I'm going to take the time to respond, no matter what. I'll keep the quality up!
..........Shortness is fine when your chapters are so rich with details. This chapter was short but intense; this stroy has a smooth flow nothing is dragged out or too short. I could really picture Remus standing there dueling Wormtail like all was lost to him. His werewolf traits showing through and his madden rage at his one time friend. The flow from that to his love for Harry once he sees that he is still alive. Brilliant job!!
I would say update fast but you already do so........... :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope everyone else thinks so... I wouldn't know since no one else has reviewed this chapter, but what can you do, right?
Wow, I agree best chapter yet. The story is great and it is made even better by all the updates. The comeback of Wormtail hopefully will lead to a show down with Snape in the coming chapters. The story is coming along nicely, Harry and Ginny relationship along with Harry's growing powers is very interesting. Only complaint is a lack of Ron and Hermione, but the rest of the story makes me over look that. I look foward to the rest of the story.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I know I don't do as much Ron and Hermione; I'm a big Harry/Ginny fan, and they're more fun to write. But, I will have more of the others.
And now for the wait this site just cant keep up with you :(
Author's Response: I used to think that... but I\'ll tell you a secret. I\'m only done with the chapters through twenty-one. Twenty-two is mostly finished and the whole book is mapped out, and I\'m done, less a little tweaking, with the last three chapters. Still, now it\'s going to take some doing for me to keep my pace. The real problem is that I went and got myself engaged and now I\'m getting married in June. (it\'s a great problem to have!) So I\'m going to do my best to keep it up until the end, but I hope everyone would forgive me if I took a little while here and there!
Very funny chapter. Although not like your other chapters, a chapter like this litten the mood of the story and remind us that these are just kids who are undertaking huge things. Your story is really progessing nicely, Harry's effort to overcome his new handicaps is impressive. One thing that is wrong that someone kind of hit on in another review is the lack of outside events happening but along with what time it is really isn't said. I am not sure of how long they have been at school at this point, wether a month or if its almost winter. Really just some small things left out I think the story otherwise is great lots of highs and lows thoughout it.
Author's Response: Sorry, I tried to be fairly clear, without dates and months, about when it was. It is winter now; if you recall there was a snowball fight a few chapters back, which was my way of saying it was winter and Christmas was coming. A few weeks have passed since then, so it's getting on towards Christmas time. I'll try and be a little more clear in the future. (Don't be too dissappointed if it isn't a LOT more clear.)
OH MY.................. Just when you think a nice quiet chapter is coming you throw that in. :O As the story has gone on I really love the way Harry and GInny care for each other. They are always going back and forth on who is taking care of the other. They rely totally on each other. You do write very well for Harry/Ginny that the lack of Ron/Hermione does not really matter any more to me, although there has been more of the them. One that that came to my mind in this chapter is can Moody see Fawkes he does have his eye and all? Anyway your story is great!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, I appreciate that! I love Harry and Ginny\'s characters, and their relationship. From the second book I kind of felt like they were meant to be, and I was crushed at the end of HBP. They need each other. As for Moody, no, he can\'t see Fawkes. Just as Fawkes can move throughout the anti-Apparation wards at Hogwarts, he can be invisible without being seen by Moody.
Your story has been great, I am upset that it is coming to an end here. The last chapters should be exciting!!
Author's Response: Thanks, I really hope you enjoy them.
Wow your story is just as good as JK's in my opinion. The last few chapters were great never a dull moment. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time either happy or very angry. Now this last chapter to sum it all up was great. It showed us that Harry did just as Dumbledore said and lived his life. Well anyways I have enjoyed your story since the first few chapters, truely the best i have read yet on this site. kodos to you :)
Author's Response: Thanks for sticking around; I have always appreciated your reviews. I don\'t know about the best on the site... but perhaps it would be churlish to diagree. Who can say, but I think I did alright. =)
Wow so much happened in that chapter. Draco was taken somewhere by Fawkes I assume since the brust of flames that surounded him. A new house and new of Hagrid. There is lots to see in the next few chapters cant wait. I really hope that Draco turns to the good side and helps Harry and the crew out. Look forward to the next chapter!!
Author's Response: Well... I won\'t say anything about that. I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I think things will be fairly exciting right up to the end, but don\'t worry there should be at least 30 chapters.
Very good game, Ginny the high scorer in history was nice. The fight afterwards show just how much they do depend on each other and their love. The story is indeed great keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thanks, I will do my best to keep the same level of quality or better. The next chapter is my favorite, so keep an eye out; it's in the queue.
